High Density Polyethylene Pipes Market Growth Driver

Aging water infrastructure and flourishing irrigation sector

The HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) pipes are used as a medium for supplying drinking water. Various countries in America are facing the problem with the water which is affecting the individual household and communities. According to U.S EPA, due to leaks and breaks, U.S. water utilities, in aggregate, lose more than a quarter of processed water between treatment plants and the tap every day. Potable water pipe renewal costs may reach more than $1 trillion in the coming decade. Thus, there is a need for a reliable and durable pipe material. High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe is one such material to consider. In 2019, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the availability of more than USD 95 Million in new funds to help the State of Michigan, such government initiatives to improve the drinking water and wastewater infrastructure is expected to drive the growth of HDPE pipes market in the North America region. 

The United States totally depends upon the underground pipes for their water supply, but the network of these underground pipes has reached the end of their useful life, which is resulting in various health problems. Further, increasing spending on the water infrastructure and wastewater treatment is believed to impetus the growth of the HDPE pipes market over the upcoming years. According to the Pengurusan Aset Air Berhad (PAAB), Johor (Malaysia) has added an additional 224.6 MLD of treated water capacity or 25% or more compared to the treated water capacity present in 2012. With an additional 61.8MLD being constructed, and 340 MLD to be constructed, Johor will see a total increase in treated water capacity of 626.4 MLD or 35% by 2022, in order to meet the increased demand from the growing population and state economy. In December 2019, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a $119.16 million financing package to help modernize and improve the climate and disaster resilience of irrigation systems in four provinces in Cambodia, which will help supply water to 43,500 hectares (ha) of farm land benefiting 290,000 people.
